Re: New engine releases & news 2021

Waxman is still alive! Version 2020 was released a few days ago. http://www.waxman2008.com/whatsnew.html I adore this program. I've been playing it since the old DOS version (with terminate and stay resident capabilities, so you could hide what you were doing in case the instructor walked by). I ha...

Re: tomitankChess 5.0 with NN

McBrain JS has nothing to do with Javascript. It means that the EXE was compiled by John Stanback.

Re: Stockfish hangs

Very odd. It appears Stockfish issued the readyok before the nnue file was initialized, and missed some of the subsequent commands sent by the GUI.

Re: How to run a java chess program in windows

Thanks that one worked. BTW what is "-Xmx1024M"? That's the maximum amount of memory that Java will use, technically the maximum heap size. It doesn't necessarily have to be included in the batch file, but in the past I had problems with some engines unless I explicitly included that option with a ...

Re: How to run a java chess program in windows

I have the Java bin folder in my path, and my batch file contains one line: java -Xmx1024M -jar chess22k-1.14.jar Usually when you install Java, it places the Java bin folder in your path. If you don't have the Java bin folder in your path, your ...

Re: Creating NNUE Nets from NNUE evaluation?

As for "Texel Tuning", typically in my experience it has been very bad trying to fit your eval to match a particular score, and has been much better to have it try to match a WDL result. Although, you can map CP scores o...

Re: Creating NNUE Nets from NNUE evaluation?

How about a texelish style tuning of hand crafted evaluation parameters using NNUE scores?

There is a bug in uci.js, the engine does not send uciok as last message after receiving uci command.

Fixing it and the following would work.
